Current UFC bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw has been tied to former champ Dominick Cruz for a while now. Cruz has had several fights with Team Alpha Male’s Urijah Faber, teammate of Dillashaw and has since been compared to Cruz for having similar styles.
There is no question that currently, Dillashaw vs. Cruz is the biggest fight to make in the division and one of the biggest in the UFC. Why hasn’t the fight happened yet? Cruz has been unable to stay healthy, suffering several injuries that have kept him out of action.
On the recent episode of The MMA Hour, Dillashaw went on and responded to Cruz’s remarks about how he should be grateful and how he owes his career to him. Also, Dillashaw doesn’t think their styles are exactly the same.

“For one, he switches stances to run away and throw one shot. I’ve never even seen him throw a combo or look that great from the opposite stance. You know? I think I’m leaps and bounds ahead of him on my standup. I think I’m going to prove it, when we fight he’s going to get knocked out.”
“I think I’ll finish Cruz faster than I finished Barao. Cruz has got a crazy style. But I think I’m going to finish him quicker than I finished Barao.”
